FO: Toasty Texters

Hey! Look! It’s not a show note post!!! 😀 I’ve been thinking about it and have decided to attempt to write about my FOs as well as show them on the podcast. Lets see how long this lasts… 😉

Last Saturday night Simon and I were invited to dinner to celebrate the 70th birthday of his aunt. Their favourite thing for special dinners is to go to the Buckingham Arms here in Adelaide which is a pub/smörgåsbord restaurant. And as an added bonus, they are super generous and pay for everyone to eat! So, of course I couldn’t go empty handed in the face of their generosity. So I whipped out some of my Lovebird Lane Fischer DK and knit up a pair of Toasty Texters.

These were super simple to bash out. It took me two days of intermittent knitting to get them done. I finished them on the day of the dinner and had to dry them on the heater after their wash to be able to get them wrapped! It’s a free pattern so there’s no reason you can’t bash out a pair for yourself! 🙂

I was super pleased with how the yarn knit up. I must say I didn’t love this colourway in the skein but I love it knit up! There’s still a skein of this in the shop if you’re interested! 😉

Details: Knit on 4.0mm (US 6) HiyaHiya 9″ circulars and 4.0mm (US 6) Knit Pro Nova DPNs (for the thumb). I used 105 yards of Lovebird Lane Yarns Fischer DK in ‘Emerald Isle’. My Ravelry project page here.
